Seems like braids are not giving up their throne on the red carpet, even in 2014. Blake Lively arrived at 2014 Cannes Film Festival wearing this elegant, high ponytail braid.The charming thing about this hairstyle is the contrast between the sleek sections on the head, and the coarse, disheveled braid. To get this hairstyle, apply hair cream and comb your hair to make the roots smooth before collecting it into a high ponytail. Take a small section of your hair and wrap it around an elastic band to conceal it. Tease your ponytail slightly and make a simple loose braid. Keyword: disheveled! So not too messy.

Cute? You betcha! Always expect unexpected from Gwen Stefani’s style, like matching classic chignon and double arching dutch braids weaved from the hairline all the way to the nape. Well lets be realistic, whenever she decides not to let her hair touch that lovely face, she is only doing her appearance a big favor. For DIY we warmly recommend at least a day old hair to avoid disobedient strands in braids. If this is not helping, take very small amount of hair conditioner, rub it between your palms and stroke the surface of your hair.

Pull the backcombed sections back and smooth the section carefully by stroking the surface of your hair only with the top of the comb teeth. Finish with hairspray.

First thought: How much does that weigh?! In all its massiveness, we have to admit that the elegant factor of the hairstyle is still very much evident just like the 2014 fall collection of Carolina Herrera. The hair is neatly slicked back into an intricate high bun, with a wide section (5”) wrapped around it. If you lack the length in order to achieve this hairstyle, use extensions or a faux bun. Fake it ’till you make it!

Frizz-free locks + loads of body + shine + subtle waves are a good mix to achieve a nonchalant, natural looking hairstyle. Add a deep side part to the equation and a gorgeous pout, and you’ve got an irresistible come-hither bearing.

Want waves like Jagger?

  1. To get salon-quality blowout, start by applying a small (too much will weigh your hair down) amount of heat-resistant styling cream all over damp hair. This will ensure that your mane will not get fried and will keep it shiny and soft right after blow-drying.
  2. Rough-dry hair using your fingers only. Make sure that the dryer is pointing downwards from the crown.
  3. Blow dry small sections using a large round brush. Pull the hair straight as you blow dry, and then roll the ends for good body.
  4. Blast roots with cool air right after you’re done then shake and scrunch your hair. You’re all set!
